I had the pleasure of recently meeting master photographer and author, Tim Ostermeyer, who gave me 2 of his beautiful, full color books to review.
Tim has traveled the world taking beautiful, award-winning photographs, which he has put into his children's books.
My favorite of Mr. Ostermeyer's books is "Snuggles' Japanese Alps Adventures."
The beautiful photos are fashioned into a story about a baby snow monkey who finds his way to the hot springs in the Japanese Alps. Along the way he travels with his parents, plays with his friend, gets into a scuffle, and finally ends up at his destination.
The text includes Bible verses that go along with the story. On this page, Snuggles forgives his friend for playing too roughly with him.
Also included are interesting facts about Japanese snow monkeys.
I think you will be impressed with the beautiful photos in this book, and the story and scriptures make for excellent discussion starters.
And because I love my readers, I am giving this book away to one of you!
